On 22 September 2015, a man was brought before Magistrate Kijera of the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court, charged with obtaining money by false pretence.

W/PC 5426 Badjie presented an indictment which stated that one Ebrima Bah, on 20 August 2015 at Serrekunda Safideen in the Kanifing Municipality, by false pretence and with intent to defraud, obtained from one Dembo Jatta the sum of D6,500 with the pretext that he had foreign currencies that he wanted to change to Gambian dalasi, which representation was false, and he knew to be false.

However, Ebrima Bah denied the allegation.

He was subsequently granted bail of D5,000 with a Gambian surety who should swear to an affidavit of means, and to deposit an ID card with the court’s registrar.

The case continues.
